Coral, Celie & Clinton - So sorry about your Mom. What an amazing woman she was. How much we enjoyed our visits to see her after so many years gone by. Her mind was so sharp and the last time we saw her, her health seemed amazing considering her age. She is with the angels now and may she RIP. Hugs to all the family.
